    I got really lucky with the weather and really unlucky with the direction the planes were going.

    Why not grow berries or something else low laying to further reduce the noise?

    My hearing is reduced in my right ear by ~90dB at 200Hz. This makes perception of anything in 3D space almost impossible. The unexpected result is I can no longer isolate a conversation out of ambient noise. I’ve lost this ability to cancel out noise sources. It is most frustrating.

    In a thousand years, after the destruction and rebuilding of civilization, archaeologists will argue about the construction, and religious and ceremonial use, of these ridges and furrows.

    I live across the road from a extremely busy train station. I can relate. When the train goes by I have to pause whatever I'm watching because I literally can't hear or thinking about anything while that damn horn is blowing.

    As a kid, we moved into a nice house under the approach lane of an airport. It was annoying for maybe a month, multiple airplanes an hour overhead. But after a while we never noticed it anymore.

    I remember this! I grew up in that area, but we lived in a so-called green zone with far less noise (hardly any to be honest). The area in question, Vrijschot-Noord in the town Hoofddorp, is a very posh neighbourhood with some of the most expensive houses in the region. Which explains why it became a priority to fix it. Those people had money, power and patience (and were angry and sleep deprived). I am not so sure if they had searched this hard for a solution if it had been the worker bees of Schiphol who were jet-engined out of their beds instead of the higher management. Fun times

    Rather than being the same wavelength, wouldn't they be an odd number of half wavelengths, or in other terms, (2n+1)/2 lambda? Because this way, destructive interference would occur. This is what I was taught anyway.

    One analogy for how incredible the range of hearing is compared to vision I heard from a friend of mine, is that we only see light in one octave.

    They look just like sound diffraction or diffusion panels used in studios. That’s where the inspiration came from probably.

    I lived on Air Force bases in Europe until I was a teenager. When we moved back to the States, I couldn't sleep well (or even get comfortable) for quite some time because there were *no sonic booms* which were *frequent at most AFBs in Europe,* especially at night. Weird, hunh?
